I have a Mini Lop Buck & a Plush Lop Doe that I would like to breed, but I am worried about the Bucks size. The Doe is only 8 weeks old currently & is pretty small so it will be a while until I will breed her, but I'm wondering if anyone has done this before?? When will a Plush Lop stop growing? How big have your Plush Lops gotten in the past???

I never had Lops but I did breed a mini Rex buck to a full size Rex doe.

In general rabbits grow pretty quickly until about 12 to 16 weeks, most grow a but more until about 6 months old. Wait until a doe is 6 months old before breeding. As long as she is larger than the buck it should work out okay.
